Mail.dhaka.net seems to be a popserver (I just checked). Could it be you blocked outgoing traffic to port 110 on your firewall?

Most ISP pop-servers allow telnet. Try testing your connection by typing:

telnet mail.dhaka.net 110

And if it gives you the same connection, most likely your firewall is blocking you from recieving email. I just did the same command and it worked for me just fine.
